Is Ranitidine effective in the treatment of chronic cough?

My doctor prescribed one 150mg Ranitidine tablet a day can I take more? I have a chronic cough that is easily triggered by stomach acid and is getting worse. The cough has been there for more than 8 years now. And is Ranitidine the right medicine for my condition. Thank you

Hello! Welcome to HealthcareMagic!

You can ask for Pantoprazole or Rabiprazole too from your doctor and some antacid syrup too to take it before meal. I can help you with that.

Take care
